Social Networking: Everyone Wants In, Even Hackers

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Everyone seems to want in on social networking development. Such top entities include Facebook, Google, MySpace’s attempted reboot, maybe Microsoft (rumor has it), and now a hacking group?

According to reports, Anonymous is said to be planning its own social network after recently being blocked from Google’s new social networking site, Google+.

The hacking group made the plans after confirming their Google+ account’s suspension through their Tumblr.

Describing it as “a social network where there is no fear of censorship, of blackout, nor of holding back,” Anonymous has named the new service AnonPlus, a possible play on words of the Google+ name.

The site and service is said to be in its early stages of development.

The hacking group recently made headlines by breaching military contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and agriculture company Monsanto. Anonymous takes part in a movement known as AntiSec. Hackers in the AntiSec movement usually operate based on political motivations.
